The Belles at
have asked us to
Tie A Holiday Ribbon around the Christmas Tree!
(sung to the tune of Tie a Yellow Ribbon...........)
I have this spectacular ribbon that I got on sale after Christmas at Mikey's
(you know, those 70% off sales that you buy a lot of stuff you never use?)
and I used some of it.
Yeah, I used, what 5 inches of it?
Argh, what else am I going to use it for..............

Check out the other ribbons fantasmagorial Chrismas cards at
and maybe even use up some of your own 70% off ribbon!


So here's the thing.
When I was a little girl, I loved a series of books about
Pookie The Wonder Rabbit
Pookie was the most wonderful winged 
rabbit in the world and he (or she?  I never knew) 
got into and out of the most amazing situations.
For years I have been asking folks if they knew of Pookie,
but alas, no one had.
until now!
My good friend Carole was over one day, sharing
some digital files with me, and 
lo and behold,she had some covers of the Pookie books! 
I was so excited, 
I had to use one of the covers in my Bubbles piece for
the Take A Word challenge this week.
 The Pookie books are written and illustrated by Ivy Wallace.  
I used one of her covers for the background.

and Kim Klassen

I also made another piece, cus I was outside playing with the 
bubble juice I bought for my grandson.

It was so funny watching him try to catch the bubbles 
and of course, they would burst.
 After a number of tries, he just threw his hands up as if to say,
"I give up!"
Are they born with that gesture???

The current Readers Art Quest 2 challenge at
Paper Flowers
So I made a card that I can use to send some ATC's 
for a "Periwinkle Blue" ATC challenge.
(I'll show you the ATC's as well in another post, but they aren't as nice as my card.)
I tried to photograph it so I could show you 
that I used Glossy Accents to make the flower dimensional
Can you tell?
I used A LOT of Glossy Accents.  lol
The gorgeous flower stamp is by Stampendous.
I use it a lot, it's really pretty, I think.

Thanks for stopping by. 
 I hope you check out the other submissions at

Mind Wide Open

This month at
we were given a really nice image to work with:
You agree, right, it's a lovely cabinet card?
And we were invited to do anything we like with this image.
 I was in a spring-timey-clean out my stashy kind of mood.
Sometimes a gilr's just got to go paper instead of digital, ya know?
I hope you will visit and see the wonderful ways in which all the artists have used this precious image.
(and of course, hopefully, give me your vote! lol)

Everything Wendy Vecchi

I made a quick tag for our EWV group.  
I have no idea what I am going to do with all the tags I makes,
 but I sure do love doing them.
The background was sprayed, using a Stencil Girl stencil, with Glimmer Mist 
and then some Distress Stain.  
All the stamps of course are Wendy's,  
and the other little doodads (cus I'm a doodad kind of girl) are by K&Co.

I always like to see you here!

When I grow up

or maybe I won't...
